The Upper Legislative Chamber, has on Tuesday, November 8, summoned the ‎Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige‎, to provide insight into government’s roadmap, towards tackling unemployment in the country.‎
The development is coming, following a motion moved by Senator ‎Duro Faseyi, representing PDP-Ekiti, who called on President Muhammadu Buhari, to declare a state of emergency on unemployment, with a view to confronting the challenge “frontally and radically”.
He said, ‎”The economic recession which has hit the country, would integrally multiply the level of unemployment in the country, as more companies have started considering downsizing, in order to cut cost and optimise profit.”
Senator ‎Faseyi, decried that the unemployment figure in the country had created social tension and crisis in the society, which was evident in cases of kidnapping and insurgency.

Recall, that the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, had raised an alarm, ‎lamenting that over 4 million Nigerians have lost their jobs under President Muhammadu Buhari.
Faseyi speaking further, ‎advised that urgent and result-oriented steps should be taken to tackle the “unpalatable unemployment” situation in the country.

‎C‎oncuring with the motion, the ‎Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Sabi Abdullahi, ‎representing ‎APC-Niger North, noted that the time was ripe for the National Assembly to proffer solutions to unemployment in the country.
He said, ‎”There is no better time than now, especially as we are moving towards next year’s budget proposal.
‎”The policy intent of government with respect to unemployment, is not unambiguous, because government has accepted that the unemployment rate is something to worry about,” Senator Abdullahi said.
Speaking further, he said what is worrisome was the issue of translating policy intent, into programmes and actions that would address the issue of unemployment.
‎”The Committee on Labour and Employment, was on oversight just last week.
‎”It was revealed, that the National Directorate for Employment has very innovative programmes that cut across various sectors in various locations across the Federation.
‎”In the budget of N1.8 billion, as at November, they were only given N74 million, yet it is expected that from the programmes they have, they are expected to train youths, and various interest groups.
‎”This would enable the youths to begin to do something by way of employing themselves, or even creating small and micro enterprises, where they can employ one or two persons,” Abdullahi said.‎
After several submissions from ‎distinguish Senators, the debate for the motion was adopted, with a resolution passed to invite the Minister of Labour and Employment for some explanation.‎
‎The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the plenary, immediately directed the Clerk of the Senate to invite the Minister.‎
